The Music Department at Mary Baldwin University is pleased to announce the next Broman Concert of the season, featuring the internationally-acclaimed pianist Dasol Kim. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 26 in Francis Auditorium on the Mary Baldwin campus.
Kim has chosen a magnificent program. He will perform Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata, Schumann’s Humoreske, op. 20, the formidable Gaspard de la Nuit of Maurice Ravel, and two exciting works of Russian composer Nikolai Kapustin.
Winner of the 2010 YCA International Auditions in Leipzig and the 2015 Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York, Dasol Kim has been praised for bringing “a refined artistry of incredible maturity” to his performances (North Germany Review). He also won first prize in the 2011 Epinal International Piano Competition in France and second prize in the 2012 Géza Anda Competition in Zurich. He currently holds the Mortimer Levitt Piano Chair of Young Concert Artists. A sought-after soloist, this exciting young pianist has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Berlin Chamber Orchestra, among others.
Among his many noteworthy accomplishments, Kim is engaged to perform the complete cycle of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas in Switzerland and Korea. He appears this season in a solo debut recital in the Young Concert Artists Series at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the PyeongChang Festival Chamber Music concerts in the YCA Series in New York’s Alice Tully Hall. He also performs Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 at the Brevard Music Festival in North Carolina.
